Asghar raises concerns about cancellations on Caldicot to Cardiff line

Mohammad Asghar, Assembly Member for South East Wales, has written to Transport for Wales to raise concerns about delays and cancellations on the Caldicot to Cardiff Central line.

Figures obtained by Mr Asghar reveal there were 176 service cancellations on the line between October 2018 and October 2019.


Mr Asghar said:

“I contacted Transport for Wales after receiving a number of complaints from constituents who are frustrated by the delays and cancellation of services they have experienced on the Caldicot to Cardiff Central line.”

“In response, Transport for Wales appreciate that the current level of service is not acceptable.”

“They say they have already acquired a number of additional trains this year and there are more trains due to arrive from other operators over the coming months.”

“I will continue to monitor the situation to ensure the promised service improvements are delivered.”
